ITS A SAYING THAT 'CHAMPIONS NEVER DIE'.... One such true champion Junior had arrived as an anonymous footballer in Calcutta. By the time the season was over, he was a darling of East Bengal club supporters. In a faraway land he hardly knew a year ago, Junior had become a star.When he arrived, East Bengal was going through a rough patch. In their previous three National Football League games, the club had lost one and drawn the remaining two.

But Junior changed the scenario. Firing home 15 goals in only 18 games and scoring for a record seven games in a row after his debut, he helped East Bengal romp home with ease.

The 25-year-old Brazilian was recreating some more magic for Dempo FC, the Goan club he joined the next season and had taken it to the pinnacle of its maiden Federation Cup triumph, when death intervened.
